This is a book I didn’t plan to write. Recording my thoughts in my journal as Vic died of lung cancer, I never dreamed some of the poems would become a book. As I put words to the events swirling around me, my grief work began.
When we were on our last cruise together two years ago, I captured a sunset off the coast of Maine one evening just before we went to dinner. Little did I know that night what lay ahead. That photo became the cover.
His last six weeks from diagnosis to death went very quickly. Here is a poem penned during that time.
The finish line’s in sight—
little doubt what he’ll die of.
As to when,
that’s still unknown.
How we get there is the mystery.
Who we choose to lean on is certain.
Psalm 25:15 My eyes are continually toward the Lord,
For He will pluck my feet out of the net.
Each poem has a scripture reference at the end.
The book is not very long. I hope it ministers to people who have experienced a loss of any kind in their life. It’s available in eBook and paperback at https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B007F5H0H4
It’s just out there so it needs some readers and reviews in order to get noticed. Care to help me get it going?
